I see QF9, the first non-stop flight between Australia and the UK has just landed. QF9 - Perth to Heathrow took just over 17 hours from what I understand and is a reflection of a shrinking world.
Of course with Auckland to Dubai and Auckland to Doha being operating non stop with similar flying times, it is not exactly new news to us here in NZ. I've done a few of these ultra long haul flights in both Economy and Business Class.
What's other's views? Can you do it? Would you do it?
